Before Chuck returned to work we worked on putting the Christmas décor away.
There was so much stuff that we no longer put out so we went through everything and ended up with an overflowing box for charity. It felt good to lighten the load.
Ahhhhhh... much better.
I know that some people feel let down once the décor is put away. Not me! I thrive on the feeling of simplicity.
Menu planning was a little lax the last month so it was time to get back to that. Having a menu plan helps me to start dinner early and avoid the temptation of running out to get something.
The "to do" list is also back in action. Having a list helps to keep me accountable. Not to mention that I love to mark things off the list!
As much as I love the holidays I also enjoy the ordinary days. I am looking forward to my slow, simple routine!
May your day be filled with joy and contentment!
